. He spent much of the 1930s in India, was associated with the Radha Soami Satsang Beas
movement and Surat Shabd Yoga
, and wrote five books (one unpublished) as a result of his experiences.

, the founder of ECKANKAR
[Twitchell usually capitalised all the letters in the name he used for his religion. "ECKANKAR" derives from ''Ik Onkar|Ekankār'' or ''Ik Onkar|Ik Oankār'', the very first word in the Guru Granth Sahib|Sri Guru Granth Sahibji and one of the Sikh Names of God.]
show many close similarities to Johnson's, and Twitchell has in fact been accused of extensively plagiarizing from Johnson's works, particularly Johnson's ''The Path of the Masters''.
